If you are happy with it. don't worry about other people. Mini enthusiasts have pretty thick skin (and hard heads).

It is a wonderful platform to try damn near anything, and not break the bank doing it.

I broke into my stash recently to go shooting and was picking up where I left off.

.223 is looking good, as far as a pretty quick rebound. The .22lr situation, however, makes this grown man want to shed a tear.

no doubt, whatever anyone says, i don't think anyone saw this 22 shortage coming! i just got my 10/22 to start enjoying shooting on the cheap....

i haven't has much luck with 223, just buy whatever you can in quanties of 1-3 boxes here. its a good day when you find some! not many good days around here in that regard. you can get it at the range, but the price will be 60-80 cents a pop...at least.

i'll pass....and wait....and try and decide if my next investment will be a new handgun OR a crossbow...

I beg to differ.

I have been watching .223 with a morbid curiosity since this all started
http://ammoseek.com/?gun=rifle&cal=113&grains=0&mfg=&keywords=&sortby= cpr
I watched it jump to over $1 per round with only 20 or so listings.
tonight it is up to 161 listings with the cheapest brass cartridge at .60.
It is not where I would buy again, but it is getting better.

.22 lr on the other hand.
http://ammoseek.com/?from=resultspage&gun=rimfire&cal=91&grains=0&mfg= &include_kw=&exclude_kw=&noblanks=&sortby=cpr
has only 46 listings, and is sitting at .19 cents a round for high velocity (ruger 10/22) where I was paying .04-.05 cents a round for before this started.

A 2-7x is about the largest scope I'd put on a Mini. Anything larger spoils the feel, looks and handling of such a compact carbine. 7x is plenty for longer range shots, and 2x on the lower end isn't bad for close up. The Redfield Revolution is a nice little scope, I put one with the Accu range reticle on my CZ Scout .22. If you are looking for a good yet affordable long eye relief 2-7x, the Leatherwood scout scope is nice,I used one on my Ruger Gunsite .308. For a over the receiver mount, the Leupold Mark Ar 1.5-4x with Green FireDot is a good one, currently what I have on my AR.
